Our Reading Den
Reviews from parents of our Denners
Our Reading Den is brilliant. It has added extra excitement in our house when we finish reading books. My eldest, 11 who has always been a very keen reader absolutely loves writing reviews and looking for recommendations on Our Reading Den. He has used it expand the variety of books he chooses. The Denner award scheme is a great incentive to complete reviews and move onto the next read. The website is friendly and easy to use with lots of useful links to reading lists and other great useful stuff.

A Nuturing Resource
Encouraging young readers
My daughter has been using the Reading Den website for a month now. She has thoroughly enjoyed writing reviews and this has definitely encouraged her to read more books! Having completed the Bronze Award, she is now working hard on completing the Silver Award!! Many thanks for this brilliant website!

A fun Reminder of the Brilliance of Books
An inspiration for all
My son has learning delays and struggles with reading so getting him to read a book can be a monumental task! But when I show him his virtual book shelf on Our Reading Den, he perks up and is much more keen to pick out a book to read and add it to his collection. He’s quite proud when he sees how many he has read and enjoys writing the book reviews with me. I enjoy it, too – the website is lovely to look at, easy to use and inspirational to all. While I don’t get to read as much as I would like, the website is a fun reminder of the magic and escape of reading a book – awesome stuff! Keep reading!

Gets Kids Thinking
Our Reading Den has inspired my daughter to read a wider range of books, spurred on from reading other children’s reviews. It’s also helped her creative writing and encouraged her to think/discuss the topics covered.
